1940 Harley WLD 45 Flathead Racer

Mark from Scituate, Rhode Island, United States made available these photos of his 1940 Harley WLD 45 Flathead Racer which is a very true Harley Bobber with all parts removed that do not contribute to the speed of the motorcycle.

Mark: "This is a 1940 Harley Davidson WLD 45 inch Flathead. Fresh rebuild on the transmission with NOS parts. Everything on the bike is original OEM except for the wiring harness, tires and gas valve. The headlight is Du-Ray and the taillight is an original Sparto. Early KH seat. M51 carb."
